The Story of Cardenal Mendoza

Sánchez Romate Hnos was founded in 1781 by Juan Sánchez de la Torre, but it was not until 1887 the first four barrels of Cardenal Mendoza were laid down...which are still in use today ! Cardenal Mendoza is one of the few great brandies produced in a time-honoured system, exactly as it was more than 100 years ago. The brandy was named in honour of an eminent figure from Spanish history, Cardenal Pedro Gonzalez de Mendoza (1428–1495), who played an important role in promoting the discovery of the Americas.

The Cardenal Mendoza brand surpasses the Consejo Regulador regulations with ease and is one of the greatest and most sought after brandies in its category. Mendoza is now the world’s most famous Solera Gran Reservas, available in average ages of 15 years, 35 years and 50 years.

The first stage in ageing Cardenal Mendoza is to run the new spirit into special 250 litre American oak casks for two years of static ageing. It is then introduced to the dynamic ageing that makes Brandy de Jerez so unique - the system of criaderas y soleras. For Mendoza this means 500 litre casks, which have previously been used for ageing Pedro Ximénez (PX) and old oloroso wines. The spirit is then continuously blended through the solera process for many years, until it is drawn off for bottling.
